2014 Outlook

Gettysburg returns two starters from a squad that nearly made the Conference semifinals a year ago. Amolo impressed as a rookie and should team with Gordon in the backcourt. Emerusabe is a talented wing, while Poston mans the middle. The Bullet offense has always run through a good-passing big man and Petrie hopes that one of his freshmen can assume that role. If one steps up, the Orange and Blue can make another tournament run this winter.
